Empire Building Challenge
A New Era for High-Rise Buildings
Join the Challenge
NYSERDA is creating public-private partnerships with leading commercial and multifamily real estate owners to recruit best-in-class equipment manufacturers, solution providers, and other businesses to invest in low carbon retrofit technology development here in New York State. Our partnerships will overcome the barriers preventing our existing high-rise buildings from achieving aggressive energy performance and GHG emissions targets.
We’d like to invite energy experts and building owners to submit their applications and join our ten prestigious real estate partners in pushing the needle to spur best-in-class, commercially acceptable strategies for decarbonizing existing buildings. Cohort members will be eligible to receive up to $100,000 in technical assistance funding, and up to $3,000,000 for low carbon retrofit project implementation
Building owners and MEPs are encouraged to apply through our portal before 3:00 p.m. ET on May 24, 2022. For more information, please visit our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
